 Ingredients List

  • 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 8 oz. chorizo (approximately 2 ½ links), sliced ¼ inch thick
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • ¼ tsp. red pepper flakes, or more to taste
  • 8 cups water
  • 1 lb. Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 small green or savoy cabbage (1 lb.), cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 (15-oz.) can navy or great northern beans
  • 2 tbsp. kosher salt, or more to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • juice of half a lemon


1. Heat the 2 tablespoons of oil in a large stockpot or cast-iron pot set over medium-low heat. Add the onion and chorizo and let cook, stirring occasionally until the onion softens, about 8 minutes. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes and continue cooking until the mixture turns fragrant, 1-2 minutes.

2. Add the water and potatoes, raise the heat and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer until the potatoes are tender, 10-15 minutes.

3. Add the cabbage and beans and simmer until cabbage wilts, 5-10 minutes. Remove from heat and season with 2 tablespoons salt and pepper to taste. Add lemon juice and taste to adjust seasonings. Divide into bowls and serve drizzled with additional olive oil.
